Cosmopolis (25-May-2012)

Director: David Cronenberg

Writer: David Cronenberg

From novel: Cosmopolis by Don DeLillo

Keywords: Drama, New York

A wealthy 28-year old Manhattan currency speculator suffers an epic fall from financial and personal grace in the midst of Occupy Wall Street-era America.

ABSTRACT
Robert Pattinson stars in this darkly comedic drama as Eric Packer, an immensely wealthy and sociopathic New York City-based currency speculator whose plum life comes crashing down around him in the frame of a limo ride across Occupy Wall Street-era Manhattan to get a haircut. Themes of power, fortune, infidelity, and death are touched upon in this sordid tale, which will likely end up a favorite for most fans of director David Cronenberg's earlier body of work.
